Alternative transport

Best granny-mobile ever. Look! It has a buggy board on the back for grandad!

My kids were really excited to see this today, as it made them remember when we used to have a buggy board to go on the back of the push chair, for one of them to stand on. It might even be in the shed in Bury St Edmunds still.

The above photo was taken in Rowntree Park, less than an hour ago. It's worth pointing out that the pair are actually heading towards the skate park :-D

Well, what next? I haven't seen this even though we have huge numbers of scooters. I'll be keeping my eyes open.

99.9% of our scooters are candy apple red too.

Great "credit crunch" idea - Pensioner's Taxis. Or, how to raise the money to pay for the electricity needed to keep your scooter fuly charged.

Thats a different take on a "pickup".

I'm afraid I didn't follow them on to the Skate Park, so if any hi-jinks happened, they[re not on camera - sorry folks ;-)

I showed this to my husband and his first thought was to wonder how long the man had been pushing her in a chair before she got the scooter. It's a sweet way of looking at it.

And yes Ruby, I finally signed on board. :-)
